    Min fru och jag fick gå ner i vinkällaren. Där beställde vi 1 glas champagne och 1 gin och tonic. Inget pris visades. Vi beställde mat när vi var där fortfarande utan att veta priset på maten. Efter ett tag fick vi gå upp till matsalen när hovmästaren sa att maten strax skulle bli färdig. Vi beställde vin och efter 1 timme hade vi fortfarande inte fått mat. Vi klagade på detta och fick som kompensation kaffe, calvados med kakor. Maten var OK, men inget speciellt. När betalning skulle ske fick vi notan på handskrivet papper. Jag noterade att vattnet som serverades i en flaska med restaurangens logga kostade 10 euro. Jag klagade och chefen kom till bordet. Utan diskussion drog han av 20 euro direkt. Detta var en upplevelse man inte vill ha när man firar sin födelsedag.

    Great food. Classical cooking. Attentive service and a complete meal. The only regret was that there was no one else in the restaurant. We had a great quiet business meal.

    We were shown to the cellar where people were drinking and asked for our drink order. No list presented. We don't normally drink aperitifs and were caught off guard, but ordered something anyway. We were brought parmesan and olives (nice) and then an amuse bouche of shrimp, tomato and a dressing - pleasant but not exceptional. Then the waiter came. He didn't show us a menu but had a friendly discussion with us about what we liked to eat. It was an unusual approach and we just went along with it, but on reflection we felt we were manipulated into ordering what the kitchen wanted us to eat. The fish soup was very good, though I didn't detect the lobster that had been mentioned in the cellar discussion, unless the shells had formed the basis for the stock. One of us had fillet steak (very good) and the other had sweetbreads (also very good) but the vegetable accompaniment was a smear of potato puree and 5 tiny pieces of very ordinary everyday vegetables. Although they were well treated (al dente) it was rather unimaginative and uninteresting. We would go again, but would ask to go straight to our table and see a menu. Friendly service and beautiful and elegant surroundings.

    Mooi restaurant met gezellige wijnkelder. Eten eenvoudig maar lekker. Gastvrij maar geen topbediening. Prijzig driegang verrassingsmenu (amuse, vissoep, vlees met groente, ijs, vruchten en meringue) 75 per persoon). Ook drank prijzig (20 euro voor fles bruiswater, 10 voor glas huiswijn).

    My wife and I went to celebrate a special occasion and we were gladly surprised by this restaurant. The chef greet us at the front door, showed the restaurant, the kitchen, and everything was so clean and shiny. And took us to visit the wine cellar and it was a fantastic experience. There we had a glass of champagne and there the chef told us about the menu and we decided there what we were going to eat afterwards in a table at the restaurant. The silverware, the china tableware, the glasses, everything was perfect. The ambiance very elegant in a "belle epoque" style. The food was incredible, freshly cooked and very tasty. The owner and his wife were so nice and friendly. They deserve the highest rating. I strongly recommend this place. Attached to the restaurant, there is a Hotel with 4 suites, fully equipped for short or long stay. The Hotel also fantastic!!

    Great atmosphere, loved the wine cellar for the aperitif. Food was expensive (we paid over 100 euro each incl wine), maybe a bit too expensive for what it was. High quality home style Flemish cooking, not fancy Michelin star food. Bonus points for the dining room, building, wine cellar. Staff was professional and friendly. In the end it was the experience that made our evening, not the food. The starter with crab and raw herring was the best dish.

    We came to the restaurant to celebrate the New year and the dinner was exquisite! Each plate was accompanied with a special vine, which was very good. All the dishes were very delicious, the personnel was very attentive and polite. We spent an amazing evening. Thank you for the atmosphere

    Truly unique experience with decent food. However, for the high price we paid, we expected the food to be more special than was the case.

    This place is not very obvious from the entrance. But it is located inside an incredible old house, and it is very spatious inside. First had a drink in the wine cellar where the chef discussed the menu. And then went to the beautiful dining hall. Everything dish is super delicious. The price is reasonable.

    The ambience in the wine chamber was wonderful, and the staff was friendly (esp. the chef). However, the food was disappointing, it was quite bland and ordinary. For example, the side for the main dish was just some cooked broccoli and mashed potatoes. Above all, the price of the oysters was excorbitant. They were stuffed with pieces of shell, being served on tin foil while being quite average in taste.

    The quality of food was below average. The lobster tasted like microwaved. The ray ailron was obviously overcooked. The service was extremely slow. 70€ for one ray ailron too expensive as the peice are not announced by the chef. This was the worst experience I had in a restaurant in Antwerp.

    The best days of this Restaurant must have been over. The towels on the toilett look like in use Since 20 Years, the Golden frames on the plates are washed away and the vegetarian food that we ordered was a wild mix of overcoocked vegetables with rice, goat cheese, Olive and scrambled eggs with truffle. So many tastes and too much of everything. The Service was okay, but the cook who we where Talking to about our „menue“ could believe that we where not amused. In between no one took care about our coats after we went for a smoke Outsider on the not very glanourous and trashy parking spot. For the price it wasnt worth to go there.

    Huis de Colvenier is a traditional fine dining establishment. The cellars double as a storage as well as aperetivos and is worth a visit in its own right. Patrick - proprietor and head chef - came to our table to discuss our dining wants. He was genuinely interested and interesting. We chose a 5 course menu degustation and the food was excellent. Well presented, good portion size and using seasonal ingredients. The dining room downstairs is in the grand style and in keeping with the food.

    Ouderwets, kitcherig interieur. Zeer vriendelijk personeel, goede bediening enkel jammer dat we lang op de aperitief en voorgerecht moesten wachten. Lekkere keuken maar niets speciaals, er word gewerkt met producten die ik thuis ook gebruik waardoor ik het duur vond voor wat ik kreeg.
